Summary: Even when I confuse the heck out of it - this GPS Navigator is always amusing! Thank heavens for the instruction book - I am still finding ways to make it work better. Easy to charge, easy to use and set up - works well and the price was right!
Summary: This product was released just before one of the Bush administration's rebate incentives. Shortly thereafter, the company that created it exited the portable GPS business making it all but impossible to update the device. Save yourself the aggravation(and some money),use the GPS app on your smart phone.
Summary: There's a learning curve but once you get it, it all makes sense. Great looking screen and the unit itself is really nice. The battery doesn't last very long. Maybe 20 minutes. It takes awhile to get a GPS signal, sometimes 5 to 20 minutes but I think an external antenna would make that better. Overall, I like this GPS Unit. I hope you find this review helpful.
Summary: Lots of features in this GPS however two different units were tested and found to de-tune below room temperature and refuse to lock on any satellites. If you can keep it above 75°F, it seems to be a good unit. Numerous tests were run with the units and it was confirmed that lock was lost below room temperature.
Summary: I've had one for a while now. They were made in 2007 and there were never any map updates. V7 has not supported the Nav740 for a few years now, and the battery shows it's age as well. The battery was never very good and only lasted about 20min when new, but I just keep mine plugged into the car all the time anyway. The voice is ok, but I usually keep mine on mute. The media player is a bit out dated, but I think there is a way to load in a 3rd party player.
Summary: I had this unit for one year. The battery wouldnt stay up unless you had it pluged in all the time. When I bought it it had two year old maps on it and no way to up date it. I got in touch with v7 and was told that nothing could be done about it. I first called Amozon and the warranyt was over with them. After threating them with never buying from them again they gave me a refund.
Summary: my gps stopped working 1 week after i got it and i am getting no help from the people that made it so im sat here with a crap gps that i cant get fixed THANKS AMAZON.COM FOR NOT TELLING ME THE GPS IS OUT DATED AND THE COMPANY NO LONGER MAKES THESE GPS OR UPGRADES THEM.
Summary: I travel alot and have borrowed other peoples GPS systems. I found them confusing to use and hard to understand the directions accurately. This thing was so simple and easy that my kids could use it.
